Durbin: We Don’t Yet Have the Votes for Gun Control


This might be some good news.
Check it out:

Sen. Richard Durbin (D-IL) told host Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that supporters of new gun control legislation do not yet have the votes to pass it, despite defeating a Republican-led filibuster attempt last week.

Durbin is the Senate Majority Whip, responsible for counting his party’s votes on key legislative proposals.

The specific bill facing the Senate is the Manchin-Toomey compromise on background checks, which would expand such requirements to gun shows, among other provisions. Currently, private sales between individuals at gun shows do not require background checks–just as private sales anywhere do not require them.
